Meet S.mouse

by Nicholas Sammond

In this segment from Australian Chris Lilley's mockumentary series Angry Boys (2011), audiences are introduced to the character of S.mouse, a satirical character performed by Lilley of an egomaniac hip-pop star. Performing in blackface and pushing the bounds of bad taste and racial representation, Lilley's caricature is a troubling testament to the continued use of blackface by comedians to illicit a laugh, even an uncomfortable one.
